Polyphasic collagen-based composite scaffolds for osteochondral defect repair
The objective of this project was to optimise a novel polyphasic gradient tissue engineering scaffold for osteochondral repair and to explore the commercial potential of such a product. Specifically the project aimed to develop a scaffold material that facilitates the in vivo healing of osteochondral tissue and stimulates the growth of chondral and bone tissue within the appropriate layers of the construct.
